Countries, cities, etc. Those trees are on the circumference of the area.
One part of the woods are trees honoring the veterans and warriors who defended Bastogne. That by itself would be enough to make you want to come here, but what Bastogne did a few years ago to honor the victims of one of the worst tragedies in the United States makes this a can't miss. On December 12, , one of the worst atrocities occurred in Newtown Connecticut.
A madman broke into a school and murdered 26 people. To honor these victims, Bastogne added to the Peace Woods plaques and planted a tree for each victim.
I've attached a picture of the plaque but a picture does not come close to how powerful this place is. As we traveled through the area, visiting various war sites and memorials, we came here. It is small and simple but speaks volumes about what happened here. If you saw "Band of Brothers," you will recognize the names of those killed here. Directly across the road, you can walk through the woods, where they fought.
Nearby along the road are the remnants of foxholes in the forest. If you are in the area, please take the time to stop here and pay respects. My husband and I visited this memorial and the Jacques Forest located north of Bastogne on a tour of the Battle of the Bulge sites. The memorial is right on the roadside with parking across the road.
It is dedicated to the men of E Company, st airborne and those who lost their life. These soldiers held this position in Jack Forest during December and January They endured mortar, rocket and artillery fire in addition to freezing conditions. There are many remaining foxholes that can be viewed if you take a walk through the forest.
It is a haunting place. Halt Station is on the same side of the road as the memorial and was a landmark for troops fighting in the woods.
The railroad tracks have been removed and it is now a paved bike path. Went here on our way to another site. The memorial is nicely situated on the main road so you can easily find it. Not sure if they are genuine after all the time that has past, but who cares just to be there and get a sense of how the fighting would have been is very moving. Worth a visit even if just to pay your respects. Walk the farm lanes, beauty hillsides cultivated, cows enjoying the tranquility, down into the well managed pine plantations where some of the people hid for several days.
Well marked-can't get lost. Not steep. Bit muddy in a few places. Plaques and panels telling their stories with photos along the way. Try this after paying your respects at the big cemeteries.
